Autumn is as popular a season as spring in Japan. In addition to its pleasant weather, it is an exciting time for painters to stimulate their senses with various plants coming into full bloom under vivid colors. Persimmon trees with brightly colored fruits can be seen all over Japan in autumn, thus very familiar to Japanese people. They are as popular as autumn foliage and 7 autumn flowers (golden lace, silver grass, bellflower, dianthus, boneset, kudzu vine, and bush clover).
In this work, Kawamura Kanpō’s brushwork beautifully depicts colorful persimmons ripening in profusion against the background of the Hōryūji Temple in Nara. The 2 sparrows seem to rejoice in the arrival of autumn. This can be said to be a gem depicting an autumn atmosphere with a rich poetic sentiment.
